Publishers Description
In this book Richard Horsley attempts to construct bridges of communication and engagement between the fields of archaeology and history focused on a new understanding of Galilee. He contends that neither the material nor the textual remains from Galilee can be adequately understood without consideration of the prevailing patterns of power relations in Galilee, Palestine, and the Roman Empire. He also uses recent work in the wider field of anthropological archaeology to reconfigure and reinterpret key findings of archaeological excavations in Galilee. Chapter by chapter Horsley constructs a picture of social relations Galilee that is based upon and helps explain both the artifacts and texts, and that takes fully into consideration the changing historical circumstances between the time of Jesus and the rabbis. Chapter 1 sketches the history of Galilee from biblical times through late antiquity; chapter 2 examines the character of the cities constructed during the lifetime of Jesus and their economic and cultural impact on the people; chapter 3 challenges archaeological and textural interpretations that tend to assume a " market model of economic life in Galilee; chapters 4 and 5 portray the villages of Upper and Lower Galilee respectively, exploring the numerous indications of conflicts between the villages and cities in the first century; chapter 6 reviews archaeological reports on synagogue buildings in Galilee with attention to date, architectural style, and decor; chapter 7 reexamines the evidence for the relative use of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek in Galilee. Here, then, is an accessible new picture of Galilee that sheds light on the social context in which Jesus and the rabbis lived and functioned. Richard A. Horsley is Professor of Classics and Religion at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and author of Galilee: History, Politics, and People published by Trinity Press.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thank You Very Much, But That's More Than I Wanted To Know.  Jun 29, 2001
Jammed with excruciating details, Professor Horsley has expanded what might have been an enthralling monograph into a boring book. The text is appropriate for New Testament scholars, Biblical archeologists, and serious students of nascent rabbinical Judaism. However, for those of us, who are merely ordinary mortals, the text is simply burdened with too much repetitive minutiae.
 
The Bible and Scientific Discoveries  Aug 9, 2000
The history and scientific answers are found and talked about in Richard Horsley's newest book. Richard Horsley confronts contoversial biblical figures such as Jesus and the rabbis. In the Gosples and the Talmud(Jewish Oral Tradition) discuss the differences between the teaching of Jesus, and the Jewish religion and Oral Tradition summitted by Moses. The Gosples portray the Jewish religious attorities as hypocrites, liers, greedy, and lost without G-d.

In return the Jewish point of view concerning Jesus is equally worthy of being looked into. Judaism, and it rabbis rejects Jesus as the Messiah, Son of G-d, High Priest, final sacrific, and G-d in the flesh. In fact many rabbis have incouraged isolation between the Jews and gentile Christians.

But in spite of the "rivalry between the two relgious traditions the one question remains is; is it true? Did the Jews and Christians come up whith away to trick the word? Did Jesus really walk the face of this Earth? What about the Jewish rabbis? Were they around in the days of Jesus, or is this one great big hoax. Richard Horshley attempts to crush all doubt concerning this ancient biblical oddicy.
